Could you explain when you would use en + le gérondif as opposed to tout en + le gérondif? Thanks!

Bonjour Matilka ! The expression "tout en" is simply a way to emphasise the simultaneity of action (*all the while* doing something). À bientôt !

Is there a lesson wth more details on the use of "tout en" Aurèlie ? I see it all over the place often times it doesn't make intuitive sense (to me), some varied examples would be really useful.

Excellente suggestion Simon !
I've now added "tout en" cases to the above lesson :)

Bonne journée !
